Make your eyes pop!



If you want to make your blue eyes stand out start by using the right eye shadow colors. Brown, beige and silver work best, but maybe not altogether.


Browns eyes can really pop with gold, tan and blue shades of shadow. The color contrast is what helps bring them out.


Makeup artist suggest using purple, blue, sliver and pink to really emphasis green eyes.


Sometimes smaller eyes don’t get as much attention, but with the right eyeliner tips you can really make your eyes stand out. You are going to want to line your top lash line from the midpoint of our eye to the outer edge. You can even go beyond the edge just a little. Also line your lower lash line a quarter of the way in. This technique draws attention to the outside of your eyes making them appear larger.


Are your eyes looking a little dull? Try to brighten them up with a little peach or beige liner along the bottom rim from corner to corner.


My favorite way to make eyes stand out with by curling lashes. If your lashes are straight or point down this technique will really open up your eyes.


Mascara has a way of taking your face from boring to vivacious. Black mascara is the key to making your eyes stand out. 


Another tip to brighten up your eyes is to use a little white shadow on the inside of your eye near the tear ducts. Just this little bit of white can make a huge difference.


Don’t forget to highlight your brow bone. This is the area beneath your eyebrows and above your crease. Add a simple light white or beige shade to the area for full effect.


While we are on the topic of eyebrows let’s not forget to keep those bad boys tame. Unruly eyebrows can draw attention away from your eyes. If you want your to make your eyes stand out be sure to pluck or wax your brows.


Do you have deep set eyes? If you do here is little tip. Use a shimmery shadow in the hue appropriate for your eye color. The shimmer will draw your eyes out more.


Either you want to draw attention to your eyes or your lips. You can’t do both. That’s just too much drama for one face. If you want to make your eyes stand out wear a neutral lip color.


Conceal dark circles under your eyes. We want people to notice your eyes for good reasons, not because you have bags and look like you haven’t slept in days.


While a heavy black eyeliner circle around your entire eye will attract attention, it’s not the kind of attention we were seeking. Avoid doing this. It makes your eye look really small.


I think fake lashes look terrific and with black liner are gorgeous for a night out or a special event. I don’t think the same look is as effective for a run to the grocery store or post office. Save the all that glamour for the right occasion.


Do you wear glasses? Don’t worry you can still make your eyes stand out. Add a light concealer underneath your eye all the way to the outer corner. The light color attracts attention and hides in shadow caused by glasses.


If you want to add more drama to your lashes without going all out with faux lashes, trying applying a couple more coats to the outer lashes. It will make them appear thicker and longer.


Sometimes these poor little guys just get forgotten, but if you really want to make your eyes stand out you will show them a little attention. Don’t go crazy, one or two coats of mascara should be enough.

Food For Healthy Hair


For the most luxurious locks possible you’ll need to look into your kitchen to find the most rich foods that will benefit your hair. Nourish your locks from the inside out by eating nutrient full food that promotes strength and shine. 


This common breakfast food works wonders for your hair with a special vitamin called biotin. This B vitamin helps to encourage hair growth and renew hair follicles to create thicker, fuller locks. A lack of biotin in your diet can create dry, brittle hair. Eggs also help to stimulate and contribute to your scalp’s overall health, which can help hair grow faster and longer, making eggs one of the best foods for your hair.

dark green VEGETABLES

Dark green vegetables like broccoli and spinach have hair-healing powers. These dark green veggies are full with vitamin A and C, which help to create a natural scalp oil that works as a hair conditioner to pump vital and necessary oils into our hair to stimulate growth and renewal. Your hair’s natural oils are what keep your hair healthy and strong for hair that’s always shiny and never dull.


Succulent strawberries are not only a sweet treat, they’re rich in vitamin C too which makes them one of the best foods for your hair! Vitamin C rich fruits like strawberries help your body absorb iron, which is fundamental for healthy hair and maximum growth. Too little of this vitamin will make hair dry and weak. By eating just a few strawberries a day you can increase your hair’s health by encouraging stronger, resilient strands with your diet.


A healthy daily intake of nuts is a good source of natural fat our body needs, as well as your hair. Like eggs, nuts are full of biotin, which contributes to healthy, beautiful hair. Peanuts, almonds and macadamias are all great dietary options for restoring hair’s natural oils and shine.


Oysters are rich in zinc, which helps to stimulate and aid hair in follicle renewal. This shellfish delight manages your body’s production of the hormone androgen. Androgen, in low levels, has been linked to hair loss so zinc-rich diets will help to keep hair on your head for longer while keeping it soft and shiny.


Salmon is high in protein, which helps to maintain strong, healthy hair. When it comes to a food that packs a beauty punch, nothing has been quite as effective as salmon. This high-quality protein source is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which help to support scalp health and lustrous shine.


Legumes play a huge role in hair maintenance and support for hair that’s healthy and revitalized. Beans are an excellent source of iron protein, which packs powerful nutrients to nourish your hair with. Specifically, lentils are high in iron and folate to create strong, luscious locks and banish hair loss.


The sweet potato for a diet that nourished both skin and hair. Sweet potato contains beta-carotene, which your body produces into vitamin A that aids in the fight against dandruff. To avoid dull, dry hair add sweet potatoes into your diet and maintain your tresses with a boost of vitamin A.


This super food, much like the sweet potato is packed with beta-carotene and is key to maintaining a healthy and well-hydrated scalp to avoid brittle hair and dandruff. Kale is especially useful for follicle growth and turnover for hair that grows longer and stronger every strand.


Did you know that not enough iron could cause baldness? Which is why the consumption of lead red meat is important to your hair. Adding more iron into your diet in the form of lean red meat can help to re-grow hair making hair super long and strong. If you’re suffering from hair loss or thinning hair check your diet, as iron-deficiency is a common problem when it comes to hair growth.
When it comes to healthy hair, styling products can only do so much, which is why improving your diet with the best foods for your hair can revive and restore your tresses back to full strength. Improve your hair to long, luscious locks in just a few months by starting a hair-healthy diet today!
